EON Reality together with partners UNIDO, SIDA, and others to implement Virtual Reality based knowledge transfer solutions in Africa
IRVINE, CA, July 21, 2014 – EON Reality, the world’s leading provider of Virtual Reality software, systems, and applications, will tour nine African nations in order to promote Virtual Reality based knowledge transfer in the region. Together with UNIDO, SIDA, and others, EON Learn for Life Program will help to bring these Virtual Reality innovations to communities that need them the most.
The EON Learn for Life Program and its partners will establish a self-sustainable African based Interactive Digital Center (IDC) to develop the Virtual Reality ecosystem in Africa. To compliment this center, EON Reality will also found satellite centers to propagate Virtual Reality technologies in their respective region. Creating an African based network of IDCs will allow the EON Learn for Life Program and partners to quickly respond to the needs of the African community and marketplace.
“The educational potential of interactive Virtual Reality technology is limitless. By using visual metaphors independent of literacy levels or a specific spoken language, lifesaving knowledge to those that need it the most can be distributed much more efficiently,” said Anna Razumejeva, Director of EON Learn for Life Program. “We are eager to establish an African IDC and work together with UNIDO, SIDA and other philanthropic organizations that have a huge experience of the region.”
This tour will cover South Africa (Aug 26), Botswana (Aug 29), Zambia (Sept 3), Kenya (Sept 6), Ethiopia (Sept 9), Ghana (Sept 11), Ivory Coast (Sept 15), Morocco (Sept 17), and Algeria (Sept 21). EON Reality is currently focusing on countries where strong ties exist for EON or its partners. By building on these existing relationships, EON Reality will identify potential partnerships to create a major IDC Hub in Africa. Additionally, EON is investigating potential projects that bring the transformative power of Virtual Reality based learning to those in need.
